    How To Burnout for Dummies?

    I got a stupid question...

    How do you burnout? Proper vs. Improper?

    Rev, let go clutch, and hold foot brake slightly??

    E-brake is only on the rear wheels, and I don't like the placement and operation of this type e-brake anyways...

    Umm step;

    1. Rev to 4k+
    2. Drop the clutch
    3. Grenade your rear diff

    Our Vs are good at many things...burnouts is not one of them.

    respect the car......burnouts were fun a decade ago, until I replaced my tires ($$$) and eventually my 10 bolt on my ws6...

    Step 1: clutch in
    Step 2: go into first
    Step 3: rev up
    Step 4: slip off clutch and plant foot on brake while applying gas
    Step 5: let off gas, clutch in, brake, etc.

    buy something cheap with tall gear, 3.08 or 2.73 are awesome, weld the spider gears together to make it like a spool, install line lock, use tires like it was hookers and blow

    I've found that you got to get the tires spinning without moving forward an inch, then once it tacks out, foot off of brake. No wheel hop.

    I think your missing the point here. Sure there's a dozen different ways todo a good burnout.

    We're saying its improper to abuse your V like that just to make a lil noise and some tire smoke.

    The proper way todo a burnout would be in a cheaper older car that you can beat the shit out of. ( if a cts-v fits into that(cheaper older car) category then more power to you).

    Awl crap. I missed the point? I should pay more attention. I thought the OP ask for help with burnouts in a cts-v. Not if he should do them or not.

    I don't see someone breaking a diff on stock power UNLESS they don't let off when the wheels start hopping. Wheel hop is what breaks these diffs.

    I've personally seen/felt a diff blow up just from trying todo a burnout. And his car was a bone stock 05. Somehow my diff is holding up like a champ even though I abuse the hell out of it(I like going sideways).

    If the op really doesn't car about possible damage, then the only way to learn how todo burnouts is by practicing. Find an empty lot were nobody is gonna mess with you and practice slipping the clutch with the revs up then quickly getting on the brake while keeping the revs up

    So on the next run I launched from a slightly higher rpm. I just got a bunch o' tirespin. As I let off, the tires hooked and BANG!
